ABOUT BODEGAS CRISTO DE LA VEGA
Located in the heart of the La Mancha appellation, in the small village of Socuéllamos, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega was founded in 1955 by 25 vine growers. Over the last decade, the winery has invested heavily in high-tech equipment to precisely control every step of the winemaking process from harvest to bottling to ensure quality year vintage after vintage.
Bodegas Cristo de la Vega boasts over 1,200 barriques made with American oak (medium toast) in its "crianza" room, an extraordinary asset to provide its red wines with the utmost quality and ageing capacity.
ABOUT CASTILLA LA MANCHA
Extreme continental climate, ranging from the 5ºF in the winter to 115ºF in the summer. Dryness is one of its most distinct characteristics, since its micro-climate prevents the entry of moist winds, presenting a low rainfall (300 to 400 mm per year), thus La Mancha is primarily a dry flat, farming plateau with over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year that yield beautifully-ripened fruit.
